Function Reference


_WinAPI_DeleteEnhMetaFile

Deletes an enhanced-format metafile or an enhanced-format metafile handle

#include <WinAPIGdi.au3>
_WinAPI_DeleteEnhMetaFile ( $hEmf )

Parameters

$hEmf Handle to an enhanced metafile.

Return Value

Success: True
Failure: False

Remarks

If the $hEmf parameter identifies an enhanced metafile stored in memory, the _WinAPI_DeleteEnhMetaFile() function deletes the metafile.
If $hEmf identifies a metafile stored on a disk, the function deletes the metafile handle but does not destroy the actual metafile.
An application can retrieve the file by calling the _WinAPI_GetEnhMetaFile() function.
